Video Descxtion:
In 2016, NASA used the Suomi NPP weather satellite to create a high resolution image of the earth at night. It can help us better understand the current developments and conflicts underway.
The amount of light pollution is most severe in heavily populated areas, as well as in regions of high prosperity.
In Europe, the Benelux region and the densely populated Po-Valley are so bright, that the individual towns blend into one big sea of light.
Especially in the Arab world, the extraction of oil creates bright lights from the flaring of gas.
And in Africa, you can trace the path of the Nile River, which, as the lifeline of egypt, attracts civilization and is filled with commercial boats.
This image points to the global challenges posed by the steadily increasing world population. And while man-made borders can not be seen during the day, the lines of political origin become apparent at night, but appear all the more absurd and artificial.
When viewed during daylight, the human influence on our planet is less obvious.
But this single image highlights the social divides and political strife from both the past and the present.

Why does the channel have a new name?
As you may have noticed, the channel has changed its name from "Society of Geeks" to "neo".
And to make this clear: It's not about a change of ownership, it's just taste.
When I launched the channel almost 3 years ago, I would have never thought the videos would get the attention they now have. The initial scope of the types of topics were very limited but now has expanded. The channel was thought to deal primarily with analysing films but now they have become more political. And the name should have the flexibility to fit for both aspects, as well as for any genres in the future that I can’t even think of right now.
And with this new name, it feels right to approach the next goals and really develope the channel into something exciting.
Thanks for your understanding.

視頻描述:
2016年,美國宇航局利用Suomi NPP氣象衛星拍攝了一張夜間地球的高分辨率圖像,它可以幫助我們更好地了解當前的事態發展和正在發生的沖突。
在人口稠密的地區以及高度繁榮的地區,光污染最為嚴重。
在歐洲,比荷盧地區和人口稠密的波河流域(Po-Valley)是如此明亮,以至于各個城鎮融合成了一個巨大的光海。
特別是在阿拉伯世界,石油的開采會通過燃燒天然氣產生亮光。
而在非洲,你可以追溯尼羅河的路線。尼羅河作為埃及的生命線,吸引著文明社會,那里到處都是商船。
這幅圖顯示了世界人口穩步增長所帶來的全球挑戰。雖然白天看不到人為的邊界,但在夜間政治劃定的界線變得明顯,但顯得更加荒謬和刻意。
而在白天觀察,人類對地球的影響就不那么明顯了。
但這幅單一的圖像凸顯了過去和現在的社會分歧和政治沖突。
